On October 7, 2015, Governor Brown signed SB 172, which suspends the CAHSEE for the next three years. This law also allows districts to issue high school diplomas to students from the Classes of 2004-2014 who met all other district requirements for graduation except for the exit exam.

On August 26, 2015, Governor Brown signed SB 725, an emergency bill that suspended the CAHSEE requirement for a high school diploma for the Class of 2015. FUHSD students in the Class of 2015 who completed all course and credit requirements but did not pass the CAHSEE and received an FUHSD Certificate of Completion in June or July are now eligible for a high school diploma from their high school. School officials will be contacting eligible students soon to issue diplomas.
